HI everyone,

I've been doing really good on the gluten free diet and ever since I stopped all my vitamins seven months ago.

Just some past information- I got extremely sick for vitamins that were supposed to be gluten free last year.

I feel really good now, but I just got my blood work back and I'm a little low on vitamin D. It was 23. So now my doctor wants me to take a vitamin D supplement, but I'm really scared to take any vitamins even if they say gluten free.

Does anyone take a vitamins D supplement that they trust and are super sensitive?

My endo doctor suggested taking a 5,000 prescribed dose once a month that he was going to prescribe for me , but I'm not sure about that either.

Thanks everyone! :)

Have you checked into Bluebonnet vitamins? I'm taking their chewable Vitamin D3 (2000 IU) that I buy at my local health food store. http://www.bluebonne..._2000IU_Tablets

Free of milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybeans.

Also free of yeast, gluten, barley, rice and sodium.

Hope this helps...

I agree--Bluebonnet is a good supplement manufacturer, and I've used a number of their products. Currently, I take a Vitamin D supplement (50,000 iu) from a compounding company, and it also has never given me any cc trouble.

By the way, 5,000 iu on a monthly basis is an extremely low dose. Many of us take 10,000 iu daily....and now I'm forced to take 50,000 iu several times a week during the winter months.

Fermented cod liver oil is a good way to get vitamin d and a. Green pastures tests for mercury and has good practices. They are having a really good sale right now so it might be a good time to try it out.

Hi, I am another who felt much better when I stopped taking vitamins and supplements. Then, I too tested low for vitamin D. I looked into liquid vitamin D. I thought that with the most concentrated form possible, the little bit that I would have to take would be unlikely to cause a reaction. I got one for which my daily dose is a fraction of a drop. I diluted it with a bit of safe oil so that I need one drop a day. It is labelled gluten etc. free. It's LifeExtension Vitamin D3 2,000 IU Liquid Emulsion.

In the summer I don't take it since I spend enough time outdoors.

HI everyone! Thank you for taking the time to reply. I really appreciate all the advice. :)

My doctor just called me and he's going to put me on 50,000 vitamin D once a week for 6 weeks and then recheck my vitamin D counts. I'll have to call the pharmacy to find out if it's gluten free.

No wonder I'm getting colds more often... in the last two months I got three colds. When I was gluten free and taking vitamins I never got sick, but I know I was still getting CC from a lot of the gluten free vitamins. And then all of the sudden I got extremely sick from them. I would really love to find a multi that I could take. Even though I eat pretty healthy, I'm sure I'm not getting all the vitamins I need. I'll have to start another post just for multi's. :D

Hugs to you all! Thank-you! :)

Hey..:)

I'm in Scotland and I get calcium and vitamin D3 chewable on prescription so its free.. I have to take it because my bone density test showed I had a degree of osteopenia.. :(

So like living with coeliacs I just have to get used to taking that for the rest of my life.

I am discovering I'm a "super sensitive" celiac too and got sick off several vitamins that were organic and labeled "naturally gluten free." I too just discovered I was low on vitamin D (my level was at 19 when normal is around 30-40). My doctor recommended 400IU daily.. which seems very minimal compared to other dosages I'm reading here. I went to Walgreens and got D3 in the "Finest Natural" brand. I have been fine using it so far. It makes me laugh because I used to buy the most expensive, organic vitamins and they all made me sick.. but a $3.00 brand from Walgreens works best for me. My body is silly. :rolleyes:
